The SNMP NetApp Enclosure sensor monitors the power supply and cooling of an enclosure that is part of a NetApp storage system via the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

N/A Measurement Handling

Define the sensor behavior if the requested NetApp value is not available (N/A values):

  • Set sensor to down status (default): Set the sensor to the Down status if a measurement is not available.
    i_round_blueWe recommend that you use this setting to not miss any hardware errors.
  • Interpret as valid: Handle unavailable measurements as valid sensor results to keep the sensor in the Up status.
    i_round_blueThis might be useful, for example, if a hardware sensor on the NetApp is disabled for some reason but actually there is no hardware error. If the NetApp returns an N/A measurement, the sensor interprets this as 0.
    i_round_blueWe recommend that you use the lookup file prtg.standardlookups.netapp.notavailable.ovl for channels with unavailable measurements if you select this option. This replaces 0 with the message Not Available. Open the settings of the affected channels and select this file in section Lookup. For more information, see section Define Lookups.

Primary Channel

Select a channel from the list to define it as the primary channel. In the device tree, PRTG displays the last value of the primary channel below the sensor's name. The available options depend on what channels are available for this sensor.

i_round_blueYou can set a different primary channel later by clicking b_channel_primary below a channel gauge on the sensor's Overview tab.

Graph Type

Define how this sensor shows different channels:

  • Show channels independently (default): Show a graph for each channel.
  • Stack channels on top of each other: Stack channels on top of each other to create a multi-channel graph. This generates a graph that visualizes the different components of your total traffic.
    i_round_redYou cannot use this option in combination with manual Vertical Axis Scaling (available in the channel settings).

Stack Unit

This setting is only visible if you select Stack channels on top of each other above.

Select a unit from the list. PRTG stacks all channels with this unit on top of each other. By default, you cannot exclude single channels from stacking if they use the selected unit. However, there is an advanced procedure to do so.

Inherited Settings

By default, all of these settings are inherited from objects that are higher in the hierarchy. We recommend that you change them centrally in the root group settings if necessary. To change a setting for this object only, click b_inherited_enabled under the corresponding setting name to disable the inheritance and to display its options.

Channel List

i_round_blueWhich channels the sensor actually shows might depend on the target device, the available components, and the sensor setup.
